Varietal : Nebbiolo
Region : Lombardy, Italy
An elegant and not to be overlooked DOCG in Northern Lombardy, a stones throw from the Swiss border. Valtellina is a majestic expression of Nebbiolo, structured yet more lively and lighter than the Barolo's and Barbaresco's of Piedmont.
A father and two sons cultivate this small 3ha plot in Valtellina where Nebbiolo will commonly be referred to as 'Chiavannasca'. This vintage sees 90 day maceration and 1 year in oak.
